USDLA Chair of State Chapters
The United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) is committed to being the leading distance learning association in the United States, and its mission is to serve the needs of the distance learning community by providing advocacy, information, networking and opportunity.
New to USDLA annual conference, held April 30–May 3 in Indianapolis, will be the opportunity for K–12 Attendees to receive proof of attendance for professional growth points. Each hour-long breakout session is good for one point, and adding a preconference three-hour workshop would be worth three additional points.
There are two great options for K–12 Educators to attend in person:
- A special two-day attendance option (Sunday & Monday) allows attendees to participate in a three-hour preconference workshop on Sunday, followed by all day Monday attendance with a special K–12 strand of four breakout sessions (other sessions also available as options). Seven professional growth points for the two-day attendance package would be possible. The special rate for this option is $200 (does not include the Monday evening awards banquet).
- K–12 Educators may also opt to attend all three days of the conference for the possibility of attending ten breakout sessions (ten points) with the possible addition of a three-hour preconference workshop on Sunday (three points).
Attendee will have an easy-to-use form where they simply enter each session they attend and get the session presenter to sign it at the close of the session. Before they leave the conference, they take the sheet to the USDLA registration desk where it will be validated and their Professional Growth Points certificate will be awarded.
The process will be so easy and add even more value to your conference experience. Please join us in Indianapolis!
Please contact Patricia Marcelonis for more information about registering for the special K-12 two-day rate.
